The Challenge

The challenge I faced was taking over the position of production manager at The Forum. The newspaper already had a well-established layout and brand, and I wanted to contribute my creativity and skill to the position, without making serious changes. This was also a new challenge for me to learn publishing layout and print design, which was a new skill that I wanted to develop. 

The Strategy

The process was new, and I wanted to clean up the layout anyway I could. I went through the previous layout with a fine comb and created a précised template for future production managers to use that was clean but also adaptable for future iterations. 

The Results

Through my Spring and Fall semester, I contributed to The Forum and learned a new skill in the end. I worked closely with the printer to learn the best ways to layout a newspaper to have an optimal final print product, and helped future production managers succeed through my pre-built templates.
